Reed Cowan of My News 3 tries to talk to the mining lobbyists who spend most of their time trying to influence our elected officials.
A special clause in Nevada's constitution keeps our state from taxing the mining industry in Nevada anymore than 5% of their Net Proceeds on Minerals. Because of numerous tax deductions, many mine companies pay 1.5% or LESS in taxes while these multinational mining corporations rake in billions from nonrenewable resources that belong to Nevadans.
Tell you state legislators to vote for Senator Joint Resolution 15 to remove the mining industry's special protections.
